Learn how a sports technology startup reached a wider audience, refined performance measurement, and elevated the athletic experience with a comprehensive data collection, statistics, and analytics solution.


Sports technology startup founded by two Olympians in water polo – Maggie Steffens (3-time Olympian; 2-time Gold medalist; 3-time NCAA Champion) and Tony Azevedo (5-time Olympian; Silver medalist; 4-time MVP NCAA/Pete Cutino & Stanford Grad). The solution provides a platform for collecting data, statistics, and analytics for the sport of water polo.

Target audience: Athletes, coaches, managers


The sports technology startup grappled with several challenges, including missing objective measurements to track athlete development and progress. Furthermore, the lack of robust data collection and analysis tools hindered the accurate athletic performance assessment. Additionally, the startup struggles to provide athletes with comprehensive insights and statistics necessary for refining training regimens and optimizing performance.
